The Taylorville Board of Education honored the Taylorville Junior High for their technological prowess at Monday night’s board meeting.
The Junior High recently received a nationwide award for its STEM lab, which focuses on providing junior high students with hands on technical experience with Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
Taylorville Superintendent Dr. Gregg Fuerstenau credited the nationwide award to the hard work of students, faculty and the Junior High administration.
Fuerstenau explains that the STEM lab is just the beginning of STEM opportunities being afforded to Taylorville students, starting next year.
The Board of Education also approved several personal decisions, hiring of new staff, and turnover of departed staff in a closed session at Monday’s meeting. The next Board of Education meeting will be on July 9th.
